Apple has leased the entirety of San Jose's "Triangle Building," a well known six-floor office building near the company's main Apple Park campus.

The tech giant has leased all six floors of the 86,000-square-foot office building at 5300 Stevens Creek Blvd., according to public filings reported by Mercury News.

Apple first rented a portion of the building in 2012, though information from property listing services reveal the company did not continuously use the space. Today's reported lease appears to be a more permanent endeavor, as construction is underway on all floors to make ready for whatever plans the company has in store for the property. Apple logos can be seen throughout the building, the report said.

The new lease expands Apple's presence in the area. Last year, the iPhone maker snapped up two buildings on the same street, while today's report notes office space leased in a complex located directly across from the Triangle Building.

Apple owns and leases multiple properties in and around the Bay Area of California, including a headquarters in Cupertino and offices in Santa Clara, San Jose, Milpitas and beyond. Locations range from the high-profile, multi-billion-dollar Apple Park in Cupertino to smaller operations in Sunnyvale, the latter of which has been described as a "black site" by contractors.

    So, I believe that Apple also occupied at least part of that building back in the late 80's/early 90's timeframe, also.  It had an Apple logo on it, visible from the 280, and a friend who was working at Apple at the time described it as 'the place where you are sent if they are killing your project'. Because it was so far away from the rest of the Apple buildings, along De Anza.

    If Apple can see where the California economy is heading, they’ll pull up roots, move Apple headquarters to a lower tax + more business friendly state (like Texas, for example) and lease out all of their California-based property to companies who are failing to see how this all ends.

    They should have doubled the amount of floors in their new spaceship campus.  It was already too small for them before it was even finished!

    Sure, that makes perfect sense since they just built their HQ there without considering California's economy. /eyeroll

    Now matter how large they built it, it was always gonna be too small. You're not gonna fit 20,000 Apple employees in one building very easily. I think Apple knew they weren't gonna fit everyone in the same building. They even admitted they're still going to use the 1 Infinite Loop campus, even after Apple Park was finished and fully moved in.

    And by the way, Apple is already a major employer in the Austin, TX area. They are also building a new 133 acre campus there that will have some 5,000 employees.

    While the economic weather is still bright for Apple, one also needs to think about retreating when things sour. Having a single gigantic building while making a statement it also make it hard to shrink! So Apple is doing the smarter direction of leasing space around it. So they have flexibility!

    There is still one piece of property right across the street at 10500 N Tantau Ave. I suspect Apple owns it, but hasn't built on it. This was the contractors work site during the build of Apple Park. It was fenced off for a good year and then they raised it and put up a sturdy tall fence hiding it. At least what I can see within Apple Maps & Google Earth.
